I used this phrase as a discussion prompt during a recent lunch ‘n’ learn with the iHire team. Remember being told in school that there are no stupid questions? I told the group that there are no stupid ideas. With the freedom to be honest and uninhibited, the responses I received were awesome!
Transparency allows and encourages people to speak their minds, deliver feedback respectfully, and take appropriate action.
Here is what it means to be transparent at iHire:
